King Hezekiah and the people of Judah did not put Micah to death. Instead, Hezekiah honored the Lord and tried to win his favor. And the Lord changed his mind about the disaster that he said he would bring on them. Now we are about to bring a terrible disaster on ourselves."
(There was another man, Uriah son of Shemaiah from Kiriath Jearim, who spoke in the name of the Lord against this city and nation just as Jeremiah did.
When King Jehoiakim and his soldiers and officials heard what Uriah had said, the king tried to have him killed. But Uriah heard about it; so he fled in terror and escaped to Egypt.
King Jehoiakim, however, sent Elnathan son of Achbor and some other men to Egypt to get Uriah.
They brought him back to King Jehoiakim, who had him killed and his body thrown into the public burial ground.)
But because I had the support of Ahikam son of Shaphan, I was not handed over to the people and killed.
